Dust Off The Old People And Guns! ‘Red’ Sequel Being Penned
The Hoebers most recently have put together a script for Battleship, which sounds like a Herculean task, so let's not underestimate their ability to craft a story out of a razor-thin premise. Adding to their cache is the fact that Red got a nod from the Golden Globes for Best Comedy or Musical, which may not mean much to laymen, but those Hollywood types LOVE their awards.
The film hasn't been greenlit, but it's probable that with the same writing team, Summit will find a way to make this work. Even if it's just old-people jokes for 105 minutes. Betty White made old people so hot again. (Collider)
